Lucky Littles to Enjoy Holiday Haven
75 Local Little Brothers and Sisters Participate in Holiday Season Festivities
WHAT: As their annual community action project, teachers and children from Teach Elementary School in San Luis Obispo, CA are creating a winter wonderland of activities for 75 at-risk children and their Bigs and families who participate in Big Brothers Big Sister’s programs. Each classroom will create two activities that will provide a holiday carnival/party for these disadvantaged youth. Activities will include a holiday carnival, arts and crafts, face painting, holiday karaoke, cookie decorating, gifts for each child, and more.
“The whole community comes together to support these kids, which is inspiring. It makes me so proud to work so closely with so many community members who care so deeply about San Luis Obispo County’s children,” says CEO, Jenny Luciano.
